First of all, my apologies if this comes off as a tad nonsensical. I just got back from the midnight premier and, excited as I am... I be needin' sleep soon. So, secondly - omfg, wasn't it just wonderful! It definitely met my expectations. If anything, it only complimented the graphic novel. The characters were spot on, the differences between film and source material were minimal, and, in the end, it was just an all-around spectacular movie. The only MAJOR change I noticed was at the end, when... Spoiler Rorschach is vaporized. I suspected they had changed something from the glimpses of extra comic pages I'd seen and rumors I had heard - I still sat up a little straighter in my seat when I realized Nite Owl was still on screen during the Dr. Manhattan/Rorschach confrontation. It always bugged me in the novel how Rorschach dies alone while Dan and Laurie are inside having sex -.-. To have Manhattan omit the truth about killing Rorschach later bugged me even more. It paralleled NY's demise a little too much for my taste. I much prefer Nite Owl being there then taking some long-deserved swings at Veidt. Blasphemous or not, I actually preferred the film's ending.
